Putrajaya Tourism

Located in Malaysia, Putrajaya also referred to as the Federal Territory of Putrajaya is a city situated towards the south of Kuala Lumpur. Putrajaya is known for its well built late 20th-century architecture of the Putrajaya Mosque and Iranian style architecture of the Putra Bridge which overlooks the famous man-made Putrajaya Lake. 

In Sanskrit, ‘Putra’ means prince or male child and ‘Jaya’ means success or victory. The city was named Putrajaya after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj. It is based on the theme of a garden city which is modern, exquisite, futuristic and Malaysian but is in absolute harmony with the natural environment. The streets of Putrajaya provide a European feel while the government buildings provide a blend of modern architecture and Islamic Arts.

In the north of the city is the Putrajaya Botanical Garden, the biggest botanical garden in Malaysia (covering an area of 92 hectares) which contains Asian and African plants. The China-Malaysia Friendship Garden is a lakeside park which is home to varied flora.  The man-made 650-hectare lake provides scope for water activities and boating and the spectacular bridges are illuminated with changing colour lights providing beautiful views at night. 

Almost 38 per cent of Putrajaya is covered with green areas and wetlands meant to preserve its ecosystem while imparting a retreat from the strain of a modern lifestyle with its atmosphere and incredible attractions. The palaces, mosques and monuments in the city are other visually appealing settings.
